16 plays, 16 directors, lots of actors, 10 minutes... 3 winners... 1 with eternal (yearly) glory!
Applications to direct in our Annual Ten Minute Play Festival are now being accepted!
Looking to try your hand at directing or just want to polish your directing chops?
Seoul Players' 9th Annual 10 Minute Play Festival is now seeking directors for our November 2019 production. This year we will select plays from over 380 submissions from all around the world. During the first weekend, every play will be performed twice, then the audience votes on their favourite. The top plays return the following Saturday for a final performance, during which a panel of judges select the winning plays of the festival. Cash prizes are awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place plays.
If you are interested in directing a show, send a resume and a short paragraph about your directing style to firstname.lastname@example.org .
If you've already directed for Seoul Players, you only need to send us an email of interest - no resume required!
No directing experience? No problem! A ten minute play is a great place to start, and our board of directors will be available throughout the entire process to provide support and answer any questions you have. Just tell us a little bit about what you hope to learn from the experience.
Some years we have more plays than directors, so let us know if you would be interested in directing 1 or 2 plays. Everyone can be involved in a maximum of two plays, so you can choose to audition for one and direct one, but if you direct two plays, you may not audition.
Deadline for Director Applications: June 14th, 2018
August 31-September 1: Auditions* October 12th, 13th : Observed Rehearsals** November 9th, 10th : TECH*** November 15th, 16th, 17th : First Round November 23rd : Finals
*If you are unable to attend auditions, you can still direct a play. Our producers will cast it for you.
** At Observed Rehearsals, we will rent a space and invite each play to rehearse for an hour in the space so the producer can see how shows are coming along. This is also where our tech/stage manager can get a feel for the technical requirements of the piece, and our translator can make sure the tone is matching the tone of the translation.
***Each play will receive 1 hour for tech during tech weekend.
